Outreach and Engagement Practitioners Workshop

A Preconference Event of the Engagement Scholarship Consortium Annual Conference

September 30 - October 1, 2018
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Expanding the Boundaries of Boundary-spanning

Join us for the 10th annual, Outreach and Engagement Practitioners Network (OEPN) preconference workshop as we challenge ourselves to further expand our boundary-spanning abilities in today’s higher education landscape.

Who Should Attend

The OEPN preconference workshop is designed for university staff, non-tenure-track faculty, and community partners who facilitate, manage, direct, and administer ongoing projects, programs, services, research, and relationships between institutions of higher education and community partners. These professionals span the boundaries between campus and communities and have an emerging professional identity and a unique set of strengths and challenges that will be addressed in this workshop. Because of the overlap in roles, skills, and values, all "boundary spanners" who facilitate community-university partnerships are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Workshop attendees are encouraged to attend the Full Conference and look for the sessions focusing on boundary spanning.

For more information on the OEPN Pre-Conference Workshop, please contact the Planning Co-chairs: Tracy D. Dace (tracy@dreaamhouse.org), Dreaam House, or Jeanne McFarland-McDonald (jeanne.mcdonald@colorado.edu), University of Colorado - Boulder.

Note: This workshop is organized by the members of the Outreach and Engagement Practitioners Network. We invite you join the preconference as well as the network. In addition to the OEPN's preconference workshop, there will be several sessions throughout the ESC Conference focusing on boundary spanning. Be sure to check them out!
